Annotation confidence Not enough data
Do you think this miRNA is real?
Kim et al. cloned 40 new miRNAs from rat E18 primary cortical neurons [1]. This mouse miRNA is predicted based on homology to the verified rat sequence (MIR:MI0000624) - its expression was later verified in mouse [2]. The mature sequence shown here represents the most commonly cloned form from large-scale cloning studies [2]. The 5' end of the miRNA may be offset with respect to previous annotations.
